Next up is our trip to North Carolina, but first we have to cover Geocaching, as some took place in NC.
I’d heard about geocaching years ago, but it didn’t really stick with me. It surfaced again last summer, I checked out the site (www.geocaching.com) by Groundspeak and was intrigued, but again, it didn’t stick. I don’t know why I suddenly thought about it again…oh wait….yes, I do. I was watching an episode of One Tree Hill and the Aunt takes the kid on treasure hunt around town. I thought, that would be fun and then remembered geocaching and so decided to look it up.
As with any new adventure, I wanted to share it with my sister. And since she would be joining us in just a few weeks in NC, I thought it was the perfect time to jump right in. So I found a few caches in North Carolina and sent the GPS coordinates to our Garmin.
I will tell in more detail about each find later, but for now will just say, Geocaching is a great family outdoor activity….I highly encourage everyone to do it. And as for the GPS, we’ve had more success just looking at the satellite map on Google, so you can even do it on a tight budget. And what’s better than hanging with your family, working towards a common goal and being active all at the same time?
